@JeremyECrawford What about special racial abilities like the gnome? Does the gnome need materials for minor illusion?

If a racial trait grants a spell, the trait tells you if you can ignore any of the spell's components. #DnD https://t.co/tQ6tRJJIGA

@QueerSeer So drow from the Players Handbook require M component for racial abilities (ie. Darkness), but Monster Manual drow do not? That's correct—a result of monster versions of some things being simplified. A DM has much to manage!
